New attachment from Grimme reduces damage during potato sorting

Poor handling of potatoes after harvest can lead to superficial damage of the skin and cause infections and rot, which is a major source of wastage. Because of this, Grimme has released a new transfer aid that minimises the risk of damaging potatoes during handling. The SoftFlow combs, which can be fitted to new and existing conveyors, have elastic, polyurethane “fingers”. Because of the constant movement and high elasticity of the fingers, debris such as stones, lumps or weeds cannot get trapped. The SoftFlow combs are imported and sold in Australia through Landpower.
